Subject RE: PDFBox 2.1.0
Date Sat, 27 Aug 2016 13:57:40 GMT
Thank you, John, I consider that. For now I intend to suggest an approach
for PDFBOX-3065 (signing using external signing service) feature
implementation. As we ourselves required it,  we used some hacks to get data
to be signed and inject the resulted signature. If PDFBox had this feature
natively , it surely could be implemented without any hacks.

With best regards,
Petras Petkus

You might want to think about contributing some of this code to PDFBox, we'd
certainly appreciate it!
